Default Graphics card question

I notice a lot of motherboards have chipsets on them that are made by ATI or Nvidia. For instance, just pulling a motherboard off Newegg, "North Bridge NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI."

Will an Nvidia graphics card perform any better than an ATI on that kind of board? Same thing with an Nvidia card on an ATI chipset?

Default Re: Graphics card question

It makes no difference. I am running a Nvidia chipset and an ATI card, and have run Nvidia on it as well. As long as you have the proper drivers for each, you will never have a single problem with it.
